Not as humid as forecast first thing: run buddy & I stuck to the trails and headed further down the beach.  As we passed the Marina, we were hailed by the manic shouts of a bather, possibly with a few issues.  In 20 years, I've never seen anyone swimming there

Morning and it's pouring down  !

3.5M Steady run in the rain

Woke up with calf cramp in the night, agony, must have been having a wierd dream so skipped a run this morning.

Nessie - I hope you mean like a train

Finally got out again.  Had nearly a week away from running.  We spent a lovely 4 days in London being all tourist like and it came at a good time as my knee was becoming increasingly difficult to run on.  6 miles today and a notably sore knee as a result.  Damn

Very good session at Kirkby track tonight. 5.7 miles of efforts. And my 5 yr old son Lucas came to watch , and he even  beat me in a sprint race at the end

Warm and dull here today.

3M Steady off road.

Gah - awful run today.  Not sure what was up with me but the break doesn't seem to have done me many favours at all.  Sluggish, heart rate was massively elevated, pains in chest, stitch, sweated like i've never sweated before and wanted the run to end almost as soon as it started.  Gritted my teeth through 7 miles but it's been a long time since i've hated a run.  I hated that one though - big time.

Oddly, my aching knee stood up alright today, only giving me minor cause for additional grumpiness on top of the general, all round grumpiness.

Much to look forward to tomorrow though.  2.5 years ago, I vowed not to place a single penny into the hands of Leeds United owner Ken Bate's pocket any longer.  I haven't attended a game since. My club has now finally rid themselves of his stench and I get to go back to Elland Road again.  I feel like an over-excited schoolboy, I cannot wait

We all have runs like that, SB, often without any explanation - I usually put it down to (a) being quite old, or (b) trying too hard

7am today, easy going on trails to the Serpentine South, then quite a battle against a force 4 or 5 warm wind down the beach before some respite between the two lakes.  Running buddy off to Italy for a week - cycling holiday - so I'll need to locate my own motivation!

Don't sweat it SB, these things are cyclical and don't follow our level of fitness!  After 2 days of calf niggles, 9 miles went perfectly for me this morning?!?

Chin chin,


03/08/2013 at 10:01

Quite so, DD!

Another 5.2 miles of trail, path & beach in bright, warming sunshine as a lively westerly drove on an incoming tide of foaming breakers, interrupting the birds' early morning breakfast meetings.

Cheers chaps.  Same result this morning though, not helped by the curry I had last night wanting to make itself known for a second time.  Maybe i'm fighting a virus off?   I feel ok generally though. 6.5 miles GA.

Good running people.  Off to Elland Road I go

On and on!

03/08/2013 at 12:17

Enjoy the match sb

03/08/2013 at 22:32

chin up SB.  This too will pass.

Me- 5 mile club race through our beautiful Epping Forest this morning. Last one of the summer.  Loved every (SLOW) minute of it

anyone else wondering what happens to Fudge when Cidlad is in Almeria? can't be many long runs if you're stuck in kennels...

When I dropped him off at the kennels, I mentioned that we did about 8km a day on our runs - he just looked at me with a blank expression

Anyway....back in town, so I took him out for a 5km loosener in the park this morning - all I could muster after a long day travelling yesterday

already missing the morning runs with the sun rising over the mountains to one side and the waves of the Mediterranean softly licking the sandy coves to the other - running past the marina cafes which were giving off the aroma of freshly caught seafood - sampled the estrella damm, mahou and cruzcampo in copious amounts - that's my kind of warmdown  

Running in Spain is a pleasure I could never tire of

relaxed running everyone

So, you're forgiven then, cidlad?   Often wonder how much dogs think or understand - much more than might be imagined!

You've had a blissful holiday & the description should be in a tourist brochure - welcome back!

04/08/2013 at 11:16

Gracias swittle - I suspect Fudge had many dog thoughts as his ollies were rolling around in his skull - in his case soft ollies

Out earlyish for a 45 min easy run on the woodland trail in warm dappled sunshine - trails overgrown with brambles and the odd fallen tree - not as easy to negotiate as I would have hoped so a bit stop/start - still a pleasant bimble

Fudge slowly getting back into the routine

run strong everyone


04/08/2013 at 16:16

John - I really did too, it was a momentous day for the club.  Not in the result, which was great but in the feeling.  A wonderful day

Nessie - The chin is up, don't worry about that

Much better today for a 5 mile steady run.  Knee also feeling nearly back to normal so looking forward to some faster stuff again soon. 

Good running all.

Cidlad. Sounds superb. I'm off to France in a week and have 2 weeks of early morning runs to look foward to. Running through shaded forests and along beautiful beaches, returning home with goodwill gestures of pastries and fresh bread just as the family wake up. Mmmm, can't wait.

Anyway, did a 10mile road race today. 82 minutes. Another hot day. Every race I've done this year have been in temperatures in the mid twenties or higher.

04/08/2013 at 17:48

Oh yes, nearly forgot, welcome back Cid.  I love Spain too - sounds like you had a reet time.
